Area:Mt. Fuji/Fuji Five Lakes

Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen-jinja Shrine has a history of 1900 years. When Yamato Takeru-no-mikoto, the ancient Japanese emperor, went on an expedition east, he worshipped the divine spirit of Mt. Fuji from this location, declaring, ""Worship the mountain spirit of Mt. Fuji from the north!"" Then, a small shrine for Mt. Fuji was constructed here.
The goddess of Mt. Fuji, Konohana-sakuya-hime-no-mikoto, Hikoho-no-ninigi-no-mikoto, and Ooyamazumi-no-kami are worshipped here.
This shrine garnered religious attention as a site for worshipping Mt. Fuji from afar for quite some time. In the Edo Period, as the Fuji-ko (Mt. Fuji religion) spread, people would begin their mountain pilgrimage here, so it flourished as the starting point of the Mt. Fuji climbing road, called Yoshida Ascending Route. The shrine grounds, built in the beginning of the 17th century with Fuji-ko’s contributions, are magnificent, and you can feel that the shrine is the center of the Mt. Fuji religion.The shrine is a Mt. Fuji World Cultural Heritage Site Asset. The main shrine, east shrine, and west shrine are national culturally important assets.
